Talking Town: Charles Causley’s Launceston poems
With Rosemary Walters

Charles Causley’s poems which are set in the context of the town of Launceston evoke a unique atmosphere only possible from the intimate knowledge of lifelong residence.
In his various collections Causley foregrounds streets, buildings and locations in Launceston to articulate this sense of place.
But the poems also blend history, imagination and experience to express his recurrent themes of survivor’s guilt, loss of innocence and the significance of the Christian narrative.
Alongside these more serious themes are those poems which reflect his sense of fun and affectionate humour.

Rosemary Walters was born and grew up in Launceston attending Windmill County Primary School and Launceston College.
Her parents grew up in the Launceston of the 20s and 30s alongside Charles Causley, and they remained lifelong friends of the poet.
In retirement from teaching and lecturing in Canterbury where she now lives, Rosemary completed a Research MA on Causley’s poetry On The Border; she is now a PhD student, focusing on Causley’s poetry and the concept of a common culture.
